We took our son and his roommates out to dinner at this local favorite. After being seated we were served a couple of bottles of very nice sparkling wine. This was on the house and seemingly unlimited. Appetizers followed and then first courses. I had eggplant ravioli. Best I've ever eaten! The red sauce was obviously made there fresh and... More

a small and very popular place with excellent service and a great menu. Straightforward Italian food which tastes wonderful. An ideal lunch place when you want to take your time and relax _ showed all the signs that it would be nice and lively in the evening too. and they serve the best Limoncello in the world !

Me and my partner loved this meal we loved the ambience of the place and the owner was very amusing and droll. On this same trip we visited Osteria Francescana and I can honestly say this meal was far more enjoyable in every aspect. Great times!

This restaurant is the best place I have ever been to. The service is absolutely amazing! There is no menu; the owner of the restaurant sits down to talk to you and he has an amazing intuition on what you want to eat. The food is absolutely gorgeous! I was served passatelli in broth, artichoke ravioli, linguine with bolognese, and... More

We had the most fantastic evening at Drogheria della Rosa. It had been recommended on a website for best restaurants in Bologna so we booked ahead for Saturday night and so glad we did. We knew from reading reviews here on tripadvisor that they take a very relaxed approach to the dining experience, i.e. bringing prosecco and appetiser automatically on... More

This was our first time at Drogheria and we already want to get back. The food, drinks and atmosphere were all delicious and warm. They make a delightful birthday cake if you give them a day's notice. Wonderful place!!

I had been trying to go to this place for the past 3 years I have been to Italy but they don't open until 8:30p & I could never wait that late to eat. Finally we just made it happen and will definitely be back! Reservations are a MUST, so don't even try to go without one. I never saw... More

Stopped in (party of 6...and a dog) for a late lunch on New Years Eve based on an old New York Times review my son had read. The staff was busy preparing for a sold out evening but we were welcomed in without hesitation. Read the reviews - positive and negative - and make your own call. My two cents:... More

Went last Saturday, dinner for three. Will keep this short as prefer to move on to more positive reviews. There is no menu as front Lady comes rounds to offer what is available....Long story short we wait 1.5 hrs for food, after having consumed bottle of wine whilst waiting for food and not with meal. Food ok. Some members of... More
